Robotics for Climate Conditions? It’s happening!

The era of the fourth revolution is here where robots will make robots. Recently, ABB began its new construction of robotics manufacturing and research facility in the world’s largest robotics market, China.  The new construction will be the world’s most versatile and advanced factory in the robotics industry. It will be a center where robots will make robots. It will employ all the latest technological advancements such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, automation, and other cutting-edge technologies.

The fourth revolution also called Industry 4.0  has changed the world used to work earlier in all three revolutions. Almost half of the work performed by a human today is automated. Now researchers are also finding ways to incorporate advanced technology to curb global climate change. 

Human activities largely contribute to climate change by emitting huge amount of greenhouse gases impacting the earth’s atmosphere leading to the climate crisis. 

Robotics and automation deployment will help to reduce the negative impact of human activities. The technology has opened up opportunities for protection of the environment as well as research.

The emerging technology is having the potential to build the infrastructure and facility to lessen greenhouse gas emissions. The researchers suggest that automation and robotics can play a leading role in impacting climate resilience. 

Robotics is already a leading technology with automation as its core aspect. Automation applied in mass will lead to less consumption and emission.  

Earlier cars were manufactured by skilled artisans. But today, manufacturing of the car is wholly automated, with man workforce replaced by robotic workers. The technologies of industry 4.0 have enabled efficient energy management in industries. The use of automation in car manufacturing has lessened the emission of metals and minerals impacting the environment.  

Similarly, the increasing population has led to an increase in demand for food production. The agriculture production practices are degrading the ecosystems such as terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, and also exhausting water resources propelling the climate change. 

Here technology has to be incorporated to play a vital role. Most of the countries in the world are adopting technological advancements in agricultural practices. Robots have started replacing manpower. The robotics are performing agricultural tasks from watering fields, weed control, mowing, pruning, seeding, spraying and thinning, navigation in the fields, sorting and packing. Vertical farms are being constructed which are fully automated thereby augmenting space and improving production efficiency. These applications of the technology are reducing emissions by preserving the natural environment. 

The automated technology does not release harmful emissions and lessens the pollution causing tools such as trucks which are responsible for heavy emissions of smog per day. The automation technology uses fewer energy resources and hence produce less waste. 

The waste industry has also started to use mechatronic innovations to cut down the handling cost thus improving the impact of waste on the environment. The automated process in waste management can help reduce carbon dioxide emissions.  

Surely, the use of automation and robotics will help to restraint the factors impacting climate change. The upcoming conference on Advanced Robotics, Mechatronics, and Artificial Intelligence will discuss about latest technological advancements and their applications.

Offshore technology shows a reliable future!

For over decade, the oil exploration and production companies have gone deeper into the ocean for a variety of offshore technology developments.

The designing and build of custom-made rigs have been at times compared to spaceships. This unique and particular thing further enhances the drilling projects which can cost a billion dollars.

Oil and Gas companies have been taking a completely different approach, which involves the focusing of relentless and efficiency of lowered cost. This consists of that of offshore production. The focus requires that of becoming simpler and at the same time a little complex.

Deep Offshore Southeast Asia Congress 2019 further gives a grasps on the existential crisis which has by far made a revolution. This is churning out oil and gas faster with cheaper and increasing volumes. The current oil burst has affected the offshore sector much harder and made a drastic impact. With the current activity being able to pick up more, the next three years may put an end to a price crash.

The increasing state of activities is not only putting to higher oil prices, at the same time trying to lower cost in through digital technologies. Further automation, standardized designs, and smart planning are helping the cost come down. A lot of companies are bringing the projects into half and less than estimated budgets.

In recent time, the offshore sector has been challenged globally due to various cheap sources of oil and gas. This was further proposed by Vaseem Khan, who is the vice president of global engineering for the McDermott international.

The adoption of digital technologies does ensure the important data being shifted to employee shifts and further drilling good results. They are altogether available in places and therefore contractors can access the information basically from everywhere. Further, one can be borrowing the automation and digital technologies in the aerospace and automotive industries in enhancing the oil gas operations. Companies like McDermott has been largely focusing the cutting cost through an onshore development tenure, which is brought from early design to eventual retirement periods.

Deep Offshore Southeast Asia Congress 2019

The Deep Offshore Southeast Asia Congress 2019 is one of the Offshore events worldwide to be held at Jakarta, Indonesia. The conference propels to focus on current industry trends and development of offshore operations. It is a knowledge sector for comprehensive coverage of major innovations happening around the globe, and further gives an idea of events in SEA region. Local and international professionals will address issues in the field and give a solution to the process.

 

Early evaluation targets for India’s Nuclear sector

Nuclear power in India has been largely modified with a production of 1478 TWh in 2016. There was no such import or export of electricity by the end of 2016, and almost 18-19 percent of product got lost in transmission.
While consumption came in about 2016, 1110 TWha and 840 kWh per capita on average. Along with it, there were less than 7 GWe of nuclear power in India.

BP’s Energy outlook has been projected in India’s energy consumption which rose to 130 percent around 2015 and till 2035. Further predictions have surrounded that the fossils fuel have been accounted to around 90 percent in the demand for 2035, with a global average of around 80 percent in the market.

There has been a major demand for reliable power sources. Early 2019 has been set to achieve a major 100 percent household connection in electricity. Additionally, the government’s 12 five-year plans has been targeted in the addition of around 94 GWe over the period which did cost about 247 Billion dollars. Tus, by 2032, the plan has been called for a total installation of around 700 GWe for meeting a 9 percent GDP growth along with 63 GWe nuclear power.
OECD’s International Energy Agency has predicted India for needing around 1-2 trillion dollars investment for future power generation. Along with that transmission and distribution has been calculated to around 2035.

Worldwide Status on the Nuclear domain.
As per the global estimates, China has been domination in the world nuclear statistics. Among the two countries which have started the new sectors by 2018, China has been connected with seven and Russia with two.

3D Printing In Business, Worth A Shot?

 

3D Printing In Business, Worth A Shot?

The current effects of 3d printing, known as additive manufacturing are vast on the business grounds. It is a process of making three-dimensional model data, which is furthered layered. This is in pure contrast with the effect of subtractive manufacturing technologies where a large block of materials is removed selectively. 3D Printing conference in the Netherlands, USA put forward the game-changing aspects in the manufacturing industries.

The overall process Of 3D printing in Manufacturing 

The major systems of additive manufacturing have been using the digital blueprint created by the 3D computer-aided design software, acronym as CAD. The process of Additive manufacturing can further produce varied complex shapes and structures that cannot be easily produced with a traditional machining method. In the process of 3D printing, further, there are eight primary additive manufacturing technologies which are being implemented. Each of these uses a different build-up of materials which can range from plastics to metal alloys.

The cheapest form of technology in the recent domain is the use of Material Extrusion, in which the build in a material is the use of plastics. This practice is at times considered vague in response to technologies and high printing precision materials.

How has it affected!

In recent times, the use of 3D printing is not totally a replacement for the volume of manufacturing. The reason being the technology and manufacturing materials are costing more than that of other manufacturing approaches. Altogether, there is more widely used prototyping in a number of sectors which are lowering the cost of development further. In recent times even the use of 3D printing is showing its presence in the aerospace domain, which is a base ground to changing economics, further created with manufacturing of precision components. In a string of technological advancements, the use of 3D printing has been explored around contexts of medicine and construction.

The future! 

Amid the next three to five years, 3D printing will take a major impact. The current market in the field of additive manufacturing has seen a constant steady growth scale. This growth has although attributed less than the personal or desktop systems. Thus, the industry has been not posing any immediate threat in the traditional manufacturing industries, but the change is more likely to be in gradual than the revolutionary phase. The current evidence shows the early adoption of 3D printing technologies being the advancement of industries, with a significant disruption process. 

The current biggies hitting the 3D printing domain.

The use of new materials.

The use of research and development is increasing with varied ideas with printing materials continuing to gather information. The metallic 3D printing is further lowering the cost and effectiveness is increased. Cemented carbide is a carbon compound being used which is mainly made up of carbide bound together along the binder metal. This has been developed in Germany, and it can be printed using the blinder jetting and further produce objects which are strong and high in durability.

The use of industrial 3D printing goes up

HP being a new entrant in the industrial printing segment, there is a stronghold of 3D printing platforms in form factor and the aspect of the hardware being prescribed. The objective of the process is to greatly increase the speed of custom parts in printing, which can create the possibility of the standard part of manufacturing for the consumer electronics domain, and further high volume of engineering.
